thought: recorded right after the 2003 S’Agita release "In Luce", it is fed by the same inspiration. Memories and their remains are the subject of this album: memories that are not necessary real. Memories that enlighten the golden path of reminiscence. The title is a tribute to a John Crowley’s novel by which this album is partially inspired.

matter: mainly synthesizers, samples and a little us of sequences. Almost everything is directly played.

history: this album features previously unreleased tracks recorded between 2002 and 2003. In 2007 was included in the limited 6 cd-rs box Urania by Afe records (www.discogs.com/aal-Urania/release/1601812) . There is a video for a shorter version of the titletrack. You can see it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8Q6zQwfewQ

now: this album is available again through bandcamp in its completeness.
